Appeals from the PTAB: Laying the Groundwork for the Federal Circuit

Appeals from the PTAB: Laying the Groundwork for the Federal Circuit

Speaking Engagement
Will the speedy new routes to challenge patents created by the AIA become mired in a legal traffic jam of remands, diversions, and endless litigation? That’s the fear of some experts who have looked beyond the swelling tally of new post-grant proceedings filed at the USPTO’s Patent Trial and Appeal Board (800-plus inter partes review and covered business method petitions filed in 2012-13), and considered the issues likely to arise when the Federal Circuit faces hundreds of appeals from PTAB decisions in 2014.

Our panel, which includes a former Federal Circuit judge and a law firm specialist and in-house counsel deeply involved in post-grant proceedings, will consider what happens to prior art that was ruled redundant by the PTAB and how issues regarding litigation estoppel will play out.

Senior Counsel Hon. Arthur Gajarsa is a featured speaker on this webinar.
